I DID meet a fake geek girl once. Turned out she was in fact an assortment of squirrels in a trenchcoat.
Those squirrels sure did know a lot about Batman, though.
The Banyan or Banian tree is an epiphyte which means the plant growing from other plant. Banyan is the national tree of India.
I love banyans, we have a lot around St. Pete, but one of my favorites is downtown.
And wouldn’t you rather be a left-handed flea, a crab on a slab at the bottom of the sea, a newt on the root of the Banyan Tree - than a man who never learns how to be free - not ‘til the day he dies.
As my friend wrote: “Apparently you can only legally “stand your ground” in Florida if you are murdering an unarmed Black boy, but if you are a Black woman showing your abusive ex that he needs to back the fuck off, you deserve 60 years in prison.”
===Marissa Alexander had been serving 20 years for firing what she described as a warning shot at an abusive husband, but that sentence could triple after her retrial.
Unreal, unfair, and unthinkable. That George Zimmerman could walk free in the same state where this woman could die in prison for firing a gun into the air… it just really kind of makes you lose all hope for the American justice system. Just a little bit.
The Free Marissa Now tumblr is running a Kickstarter to help pay for her defense. Please consider donating.
They’ve now reached their goal of $30,000, but you can still give more! I donated $30.
Idina Menzel stopped by the Tonight Show Music Room to perform”Let It Go” from “Frozen” with Jimmy and the Roots!
This is actually pretty amazing, now they’ve gotten a great live singer. And Idina Menzel (or should I say “Adele Nazeem”?) is much better in this that the Oscars.
OMG. Bobby Lopez – Mr. E.G.O.T. Himself, co-writer of The Book of Mormon and co-writer of Let It Go from Frozen – did a TEDx talk on songwriting. How did I not know about this?
For everyone wondering why we’re ragging on Jared Leto—Here’s how to accept an Oscar for your work in a story about AIDS and your portrayal of a particularly marginalized person. Take notes.
Here’s Leonardo DiCaprio being forced to hug Matthew McConaughey after he didn’t win an Oscar… again.
Quebec filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallée, who directed Dallas Buyers Club, spoke to CBC’s Jian Ghomeshi, who asked whether he ever considered casting a transgender actor."Never. [Are] there any transgender actors?" he said. "I’m not aiming for the real thing. I’m aiming for an experienced actor who wants to portray the thing." (x)by “the thing” of course he means someone who is transgender
Look at those eyes…
So filled with hope….
I took this picture at Book of Mormon Fan Day (June 6, 2012), of then-future EGOT winner Bobby Lopez. :)

Fun fact: the only asian actress to be nominated for the oscar lead actress role was in 1935.
